One of my favorite quotes is by Jeffery R. Holland. He said, "Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don't come until heaven. But for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come." Well I am happy to say one totally sweet blessing happened to find its way to me today. TOTALLY SWEET! Let me give you some background. Back in December I was asked to talk in church. I really really really dont like talking in front of any type of group of people- never have, never will. Anyway as bribery the 1st counselor in the bishopric said something about bringing by some ice-cream if I did it. That still didnt cause within myself a desire to give a talk, but I got it over with and now that its been 7 months since that time, I really havent thought back upon that unpleasant experience. Not until today. There was a knock upon the door this afternoon, and Daniel answered it. Into his hands were given 3 lovely little pints of totally sweet creamy delicious freezing cold ice-cream, with the explanation, "Kimmy will know what this is for." (Perhaps you want to look at that quote again--Yes some blessings come late, but they do come.) Looking at those lovely little blessings of heavenly deliciousness may just have made those few moments of my lunatical nervous ramblings several months ago worth it. And can I just say- our bishopric totally rocks! Yeah- they are THAT Cool! Sweet, sweet blessings.
